CALABASAS, Calif., Aug. 17
CALABASAS, Calif., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Softnet Corporation, a leader in the Storage-as-a-Service, Online Backup and Storage market, today announced release of IDrive EVS.
IDrive EVS (http://evs.idrive.com) is a new Cloud Storage System with Encryption on Storage, Versioning and Block level incremental transfers built-in for highly efficient and secure uploads and downloads and comes with easy to use APIs/Utilities.
While it competes with Amazon S3, EVS is a specialized cloud storage service targeted for applications that need encrypted data on storage and versioning.
"Anyone who wants to develop a custom online backup, sync, sharing or transfer application for almost any platform including mobile devices can use IDrive EVS. For example, let us say you have a Scanner or a Medical Imaging device, and you want to push these highly confidential scanned documents immediately to the cloud for backup, you could write a custom app using IDrive EVS with just a few lines of code compared to S3," says Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of Pro Softnet Corp.
Productivity improvements of using EVS over S3 are huge for these applications with respect to size of code and development time. Many sample applications requiring folder transfers require only a fraction of the code size that are typically required with Amazon S3, and more importantly, EVS performs significantly better with its inbuilt patching technology.
"We already have some demo applications listed on the site, for multiple platforms including some sample code. Some of these include a real time Quickbooks backup application for Macs, PCs and a photo backup application for the iPhone," said Shweta S, COO at Pro Softnet Corp.
Initial 2GB of storage is free. Pricing plans for tiered storage and bandwidth will be announced shortly.
Pro Softnet Corp. is calling developers worldwide to join, embrace and develop for IDrive EVS.
